Roger Ressmeyer’s photography career began at the age of 21, on September 29, 1975, when the Jefferson Starship hired him to photograph their rock concert in Golden Gate Park. By 1977, Ressmeyer was regularly shooting photo essays and portraits while on assignment for People, Rolling Stone, Time, and Newsweek. His images soon appeared on record album and book covers for musicians and authors such as Shirley MacLaine, Grace Slick, Carlos Santana, Bobby McFerrin, Dire Straits, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, and Danielle Steel. To this day, Ressmeyer continues photographing celebrities and people, despite his late 1980′s shift towards science and space photography.
